Trend Alert: Brow Extensions
The next beauty craze (temporarily) fixes your brows
If the tweeze-happy ’90s left you with sparse eyebrows--and hey, you’re not the only one--the option to have them temporarily fixed is coming soon to a salon or spa near you.
Occhi Lash & Brow Studio in Oak Brook Terrace, Illinois--a ritzy suburb outside Chicago--is currently training aestheticians from around the country on Brow Perfect, an eyebrow extension technique that got its start in the UK.
Under a super bright light, an aesthetician uses high-quality surgical glue to apply individual synthetic hairs to your brows wherever they need a little help. (At Occhi, Brow Perfect costs between $45 and $150, depending on how many hairs you need filled in.)
Your new brows will last 10 to 14 days, but they need TLC: no heat or steam for at least 24 hours, and then no rubbing or pulling ever--which can be tough if you’re a little OCD like us.
